We're still five months away from Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, but according to reports, the director has already enlisted Jay-Z to produce the score for the upcoming film. Songwriter Jeymes Samuel, who records as The Bullitts, tweeted:
Earlier this year, Isla Fisher told MTV News about the influence that Jigga had on-set even when he wasn't there. "On my first day [Baz] had Jay-Z pumped up full and we did the entire scene with, you know, Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting and it was just so liberating." Luhrmann used Jay-Z and Kanye's "No Church in the Wild" for the movie's first trailer, though now we have to see if Prince and Gaga end up on the soundtrack as previously leaked.
As we wait to hear the finished work, it got us thinking about other iconic tracks that have wormed their way into the cinematic consciousness. Can you ever hear Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" without thinking of John Cusack in Say Anything? Would Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" be as much of a classic if Wayne and Garth hadn't headbanged to it in Wayne's World? And did you ever hear Coolio's "Rollin' With My Homies" before Brittany Murphy woke up to it in Clueless? Take a listen to some of our favorite soundtrack songs below.
